Recent Concerts

Hidden City OrchestraThe Hidden City Orchestra will be performing a two-part concert series, “Order Masquerading as Chaos,” on Oct. 29 & 30, 2016, at two magical venues on the far East End of Long Island.

We’ve begun by introducing artists from a multitude of disciplines — sound and visual sculptors, dancers, concert pianists, painters and poets — and seeing what kind of chaos emerges.

Then, from that boiling soup of talent, we extract threads of the DNA of the creative process, an ever-more-linked series of serendipitous events, the kind of which have always made HCO greater than the sum of its parts.

The series kicks off at the Shelter Island Presbyterian Church, 32 North Ferry Road on Shelter Island on Oct. 29 at 8 p.m., followed by a performance at Orient’s Poquatuck Hall on Oct. 30 at 4 p.m.

Tickets are $12 to the Shelter Island Presbyterian Church concert and $20 to the concert at Poquatuck Hall.

Guest performers include concert pianist Paolo Bartolani, painters Alan Bull and Christopher Maiorana, vibraphonist Fabrizio D’Antonio, dancer Susan Blacklocke, light sculptor Clayton Orehek, sound sculptors The Smiths and other special guests, including the audience.

We will also be paying tribute to the strange absence this week of Orient poet Billy Hands …

Tickets are available on Eventbrite here.

Presenting The Release of Little Easter

Our new CD, “Little Easter,” was recorded on March 28, 2016, the day after Easter, in New Suffolk, New York.

The day after Easter is known as Pasquetta, or Little Easter, in certain parts of Italy. On that day you must go with your family on a picnic, but it usually rains. A bad band (bandaccia) is required to play. And the festivities are capped with the rolling of a wheel of cheese down the cobblestones.
